Tom Hardy holding a pit bull puppy: the best thing ever, in the whole world?

I know you’ve been waiting for these photos. Me too. The photo agency had some technical problems, but we finally got them in!! HUZZAH. And this is just a reminder for all of you who comment crap like, “Why aren’t you posting the photos? I WANT THEM NOW.” It’s not always under my control, so please think before you unleash your Tom Hardy-lust hissy fit.

So Tom was holding a puppy on the set of his new film, Animal Rescue, in New York City yesterday. According to IMDB, Animal Rescue is “A crime-drama centered around a lost pit bull, a wannabe scam artist, and a killing.” Whatever. The film should be “Tom Hardy holding puppies for two hours” and it would be the biggest hit of the year. The film also costars Tom’s newest BFF Noomi Rapace – they did a photo shoot together last year, and they became fast friends. And you know what? I wouldn’t mind if that happened at all – if Noomi and Tom hooked up. I know he’s got a fiancée but they’ve broken up before and why not some hot Noomi-Tom action?

Anyway, Tom… puppies… panty explosion…etc. Enjoy. There are no more biscuit worlds for Tom to conquer at this point. He gets ALL the ladies. That pit bull puppy is all, “Yeah, I get to put my snout in his crotch all day. JELLUS?”

  2. V4Real says:

    OMG he is so hot, so adorable, so embraceable. Tom Hardy is ok too. LOL

    Thank God he shaved that beard; he looks so much better without it.

  3. QQ says:




    Look at these handsome ass sons of bitches My Puppy lust and my lust-Lust have hit the all year high… Together, Like a Magical Orgasm

  4. Samantha says:

    These pics are my reason for living today.

  5. Momoftwo says:

    The pic of him nuzzling a kiss with that puppy….I just can’t stand the cuteness!!! So hot…

  6. Rachel says:

    Forget the guy. I want that sweet puppy!

  7. dagdag says:

    I would take him, the puppy, any time. Have 2 already.

  8. T.Fanty says:

    I know exactly where they are shooting that. ECon – go and get your butterfly net, pronto. I’ll run to petco and get some snausages for puppy (and therefore Hardy) bait.

    • Miss M says:

      One more reason to spend my weekend in NYC, 🙂


      • T.Fanty says:

        @ Miss M – you are always welcome in my neck of the woods.

        I might have to start using my New York savvy and club connections to start a CB hot-guy tourism company. We can name it Dong Safari.

      • Miss M says:

        When can I sign up for the Dong Safari tour?! Once we meet the dongs, do we get a “free ride”?! Just kidding… 🙂

    • j.eyre says:

      Can I get the puppy when your done?

      • T.Fanty says:

        Possibly. The snaggletooth in the top pic is throwing me off a little, so I might be willing to part with Tom before the puppy. Anyway – you know me. Anything not posh, ginger, devilishly be-socked, and alien is up for tradsies.

    • EscapedConvent says:


      Oh, for the luvva God. I’m exhausted! I’m drinking whiskey straight out of the bottle, lolling about here in the back of Jane’s ambulance, & now you want me to run amuk with a butterfly net?!

      Is all this excitement good for you, Fanty? I was trying to keep everyone settled down on the MacAvoy thread because I thought you needed your rest!

      Your powers of recovery are ~very~ impressive.

      • j.eyre says:

        But EsCon – we get a puppy. You know how much Mr. Rochester likes a puppy. And if I keep his one good hand occupied with Co-Pilot, he won’t keep playing grab@$$ with me. I have enough on my plate right now.

        (think of the puppy)

      • EscapedConvent says:

        Yes, Miss Eyre, you have had a very trying day. I would hope that Mr. Rochester can stay busy training that darling puppy & leave his hand off your apron strings/ass until you’ve recovered.

        Oh, I forgot to mention that your appalled schoolmarm/governess scolding on the MacAvoy thread (which was hijacked—I hate myself) made me laugh until it hurt where Eve stabbed me.

      • T.Fanty says:

        I am stuck in bed, convalescing, and bored. I have nothing better to do than sit here and plot Celebitchy world domination. Which is never a bad thing. Now pipe down, eat some of Ms. Eyre’s energizing tea cakes, and practice swooping your net.

      • EscapedConvent says:


        Well, there seem to be several of us today who have taken to our beds! You have a legitimate medical reason to be there, Miss Eyre has the vapours (plus we gave her a nervous breakdown), & I just like my new high thread count sheets, duvet, & shams. (They were separate! I did not get the Bed In A Bag!) I can practice twirling my net of course, but I’d really like to do it from my bed.

        Also, I must wish you the best with your posh alien implantation. Also also, my stomach hurts from laughing.

      • T.Fanty says:

        @EsCon – thank you. I hope you enjoy your new sheets. While I am recuperating in preparation for my posh alien probe, I heartily encourage you to break in the sheets with a little ginger action.

        Btw, I actually did have to take extra pain meds today because laughing made me hurt. Which is not an easy thing to explain to Mr. Beaupleasir, who is already frazzled from extra Fantlings duty.

      • EscapedConvent says:


        Oh my God—you had to take extra meds? I guess we’re funnier than we thought. I’m sorry for any pain/laughter I may have caused you, dear Fanty. I really hope you feel better tomorrow! I also hope you will pamper yourself & take it easy. If at any time during your recovery I am causing you to laugh/hurt, just tell me & I will dour up immediately. 😉

      • j.eyre says:

        “Had” to take extra meds? Does one ever “have” to? That’s like saying I “had” to hit it with (fill-in-the-dong) – I thought that is just what we do.

        Please feel better soon. Any type of medical nonsense is such a nuisance – except that we get you for a full day to play.

        As for Mr. Beaupleasir: darling, the frazzled is all an act. Mr. R does this to me all the time “oh, the Heir and Heiress needed so much attention and you know how hard it is for me to keep track of them, what with me being blind and living in a manor and all. And that b!tch in the attic? She’s working my last nerve!” You feel bad and promise to make it up to them. And that’s what they are waiting for – their trap sprung.

        I’ll give you a hint, all whiny roads lead to the same place and it rhymes with ‘snowlob’. Just accidentally lay a corset and some stilettos out and you won’t hear from him again.

      • Miss M says:

        @T.Fanty: My lack of social skills today, completely made me forgetting to use my manners and not thank you for your welcoming to your incredible city, please accept my apologies!

        Please, get some rest for your recovery! 🙂

      • Miss M says:

        Correction: *…made me forget…* Gosh! long day looking at yeast colonies and numbers, and graphs… A glass of wine, please! 🙂

      • T.Fanty says:

        @Miss Eyre – he can ask. With all the meds in my system, it will indeed be the slowest job ever. Plus, if I lay out my corset and heels for him, I don’t know if I’ll ever get them back.

  9. skuddles says:

    A guy who loves animals is okay in my books 🙂

  10. Marty says:

    There are some more photos floating around where Tom is holding the dog like a baby and giving it kisses, SO DAMN CUTE!!!!

  11. Dee Cee says:

    OOooooh.. floppy ears.. squeeeeeee

  12. phlyfiremama says:

    Pretty much one of the cutest puppies ever. I hope that this spurs people to take a second look at the so-called “bully breeds” and realize that 99.9% of the time, it isn’t the dog that is the problem~it is the OWNER. Pit bulls are some of the sweetest dogs ever~when raised right, and not bred or trained to fight. It is a shame and tragedy that in so many animal shelters having pit bull ancestry in the mix is very often an automatic death sentence for dogs.

  13. LittleDeadGirl says:

    For a second I thought he had a new pitbull puppy and was ready to love him even more but to be honest I couldn’t love him anymore …

  14. jinni says:

    I don’t like dogs and Tom seems to never look good to me most of the time. I used to find him really attractive, but something happened. Maybe it’s because he’s so burly now and I liked him more on the slender side, but he just doesn’t do it for me anymore. So, meh to these pictures.

  15. The Original Mia says:

    These pics are sooooo cute. Bet that puppy will be Tom’s by the end of the shoot.

  16. Sara says:

    The puppy is cute. Tom Hardy does nothing for me. He’s a complete Chav with messed up teeth. His performance as Bane was also totally laughable.

  17. danni says:

    i’m in-love!

  18. marie says:

    that puppy is adorable..

  19. Kaye says:

    Tom Hardy wins the Internet.

  20. KellyinSeattle says:

    Reminds me of a huge, bulky guy I know –
    6″4,….who carries his little girl in a body hugger….so cute.

  21. marie says:

    whoops, nevermind..

  22. dagdag says:

    Not true, look who´s at the end of the leash. You can ruin any dog.

  23. Kizzy says:

    Cute. What’s that in his other hand? Dildo?

  24. TheOriginalKitten says:

    DYING. Gah! So much hotness.

    As much as I love that adorable puppy-nothing must get between me and my Hardy.

    Now which pic should I use as my screen saver, ladies? Hmmmm? Yes, I AM serious.

    • marie says:

      4th one down, where the puppy is sitting on his hand either that or the one where he’s giving the little one a kiss..

    • I Choose Me says:

      I’m partial to pic 4 but why choose? Use ’em all. 🙂

    • bluhare says:

      TOK: Go over to DListed and check the ones Michael D has up. There’s one with the puppy sticking his tongue out. Otherwise, #4 for sure.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Bluhare-I just looked @ DListed-thanks for the heads-up. That picture with the pup’s tongue out….holy jeez…I want to “fluff” the puppy’s ears then yank puppy out of Tom’s arms and climb him like a tree.

      So I think the general consensus is that I should do a rotating slideshow of all the pics. Done and done.
      And I shan’t be working for the rest of the day…

  25. Reece says:

    Tom who…look at that puppy! Look at that face, those ears! 4th pic *dies*

  26. TheOriginalWaffle says:

    Kinda rocking the Gomer Pyle look. The hottest mechanic ever, right?

    I like the hair length and beard length.

  27. Another Ann says:

    The puppy’s cute. But Hardy – meh. Really don’t see what the fuss is about with him.

  28. Stormy says:

    …I think I just got pregnant

  29. GrahamFan says:

    omg this is making me hyperventilate

  30. GrahamFan says:

    OMG this is making me hyperventilate.

  31. GrahamFan says:

    Goodness, this is making me hyperventilate.

  32. Aqua says:

    Couldn’t resist clicking on this post,Thanks for melting my stone cold heart.

  33. Ginger says:

    THIS tops the Alex post… Thanks Kaiser!! This is almost too much. But I’m not complaining…when does this film come out??

  34. videli says:

    Handsome man, puppy, brain melt… These pictures are a serious weapon against productivity.

  35. anna says:

    those puppy’s ears!

  36. Miss M says:

    Woohoo, Today is a great Dong day! 🙂

    Tom is so cute. I’m glad he shaved.

    I think Noomi Rapace is awesome. I cannot even be jealous of her. First, Michael (Fassie), then Colin and now Tom?

    • T.Fanty says:

      Don’t forget The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Also, Idris was in Prometheus, too.

      Sigh – if I had her life, my biscuit would be near collapse.

  37. OhMyMy says:

    Thank you. I watched the movie Deserter last night just because he was in it. Yes I probably would watch 2 hours of TH playing with puppies.

  38. I Choose Me says:

    Between the man and the dog I’m in squee heaven.

  39. Chickenlishus says:

    Ths puppy will grow up to eat him and his loved ones. Why is this breed so popular??? Statistics of unpredictable behavior are true, and that is all.

    • Arlene says:

      A well raised well socialised pitbull is no more a threat than any other breed of dog.

      • lisa says:

        before assholes started abusing them regularly, pitbulls used to be considered good nanny dogs because they are so good w small children if they havent been terrorized by michael vick et al

    • ol cranky says:

      do you say the same thing about people getting labs or mutts?

      “According to a study by the University of Colorado Denver that was recently presented in Chicago at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, unsupervised children, most of them under the age of 5, are at the biggest risk of being bitten by a dog. The family dog is most often the aggressor. In the study, the university looked at dog bite victims who were treated at the Children’s Hospital in Denver between 2003 and 2008. Out of the 537 cases, 68 percent of the children were under age 5; approximately half of those bite victims had been bitten by the family dog. While the most common aggressor was a mixed breed, the second most common aggressor was a Labrador retriever, followed by Rottweilers and German shepherds.”

    • Isabell says:

      Thousands and thousands of people have pit bulls and are never attacked. I had a friend that was attacked by a poodle! He now has a very large scar from ear to his neck. Never heard that report in the newspaper or on TV. Why? because its less news worthy if it’s a poodle or another family breed. The media often over-reports Pitt Bull attacks but rarely do we hear about other attacks. Its sensationalism news and the media loves to shine its light on Pitt Bulls. Shame on you for blaming one particular breed of dog

  40. Birdie says:

    What the heck is going on with his teeth in the first picture???

  41. NeoCleo says:

    I don’t get his appeal. But the puppy is cute.

  42. Kristine says:

    I love my men scruffy. A straight male friend of mine is obsessed with tom hardy. Hes a fighter and loves hardy cause of the movie Bronson. Hes actually the one that made me realize how sexy hardy is by constantly linking me to pics of him. Oh lawdy.

  43. GeeMoney says:


  44. vvvoid says:


    This is even better than if he were holding a baby.

  45. Darkladi says:

    Just saw Bronson. Strange movie, but has Hardy full frontal. He’s ummm uncut.

  46. lisa says:

    i never noticed him before, the doggie makes him so hot. never put it down tom!

  47. Starllight says:

    Pit Bulls can be adorable too.

  48. EmmGee says:

    Sooo damn happy to see a pittibull starring in a movie. I have a house full of bully breeds; three boxers and a female brindle pit and the only thing they ever fight over is who gets to sit on my lap. My pit is a shelter rescue with the battle scars to attest to her poor treatment (BB stuck inside her ear from up-close shot) and she has been literally a bundle of love every day since we brought her home five years ago. I wouldn’t trade her for anything!

    • buckley says:

      That poor baby. So glad she’s taken care of now!

      • EmmGee says:

        She’s never going to experience a hurtful, sad day again for the rest of her life <3. My cousin who does pit rescue put it the most eloquently when she said that she couldn't change what these dogs experienced in their previous lives but she could sure as hell make sure their futures were filled with love and kindness!

    • Mr.Smurf says:

      one of my neighbors adopted a Great Dane about four years ago…she didn’t think Molly (the dog) would survive the winter because her previous owner had her shoved in a rabbit cage her entire life. It’s sad what some people do to animals.

      • EmmGee says:

        That’s heartbreaking! I won’t ever be able to understand the thought process that goes into the intentional abuse of any animal, let alone a dog……the only creature bred to be a companion to humans. The miracle of dogs is that with love and affection, they can recover from the most heinous abuse and never look back. Their capacity for forgiveness is humbling to me…….

  49. Jenna says:

    MY BABY!!!!! There are even more pics too, and better ones. And you best believe that now that my baby’s in my city, I’m on a mission to tap that. UNF! Sexy.

  50. SFRowGuy says:

    Cuteness Overload Alert!

  51. Shira says:

    I may have just made a begging puppy noise.

    • EscapedConvent says:

      Hahahaha! Imagine what it’s going to sound like in the theatres (with all-female audiences) when this movie comes out!

      Tom Hardy rescuing puppies? Are they ~trying~ to kill us?

  52. Isabell says:

    The puppy is cute. Tom’s love of animals is cute….and I’m a sucker for men that like animals.

  53. cee says:

    I want the puppy, it’s so cute and so fat. I love it. I have 1 pit bull already, 6 years old

  54. Ruffian9 says:

    picture 5…. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I just DIED.

  55. Peta says:

    I saw these photos the other day and almost died. Cutest.Thing.EVER.

    Actually makes me want to go out and buy a cute little pit bull puppy. That will grow up to be a big ole angry pit bull. But that’s ok if Tom Hardy can handle it so can I! 🙂

  56. Ravensdaughter says:

    I want Tom-and the puppy!

  57. Lexi says:

    Tom hardy is sooo sexy, iam jealous of that puppy

  58. Joanna says:

    i love that puppy!!!! soo cute!!!

  59. Christina says:

    Yes, you are quite correct. This is the best thing in the whole world. Thank you!
